Darryl C. Richie is an inspirational speaker and author looking to inspire with my story of being a two-time cancer survivor.
Audiences can expect to hear and read how I connect my experiences and realities of being a two-time cancer survivor and hip amputee to the digital world of the inFAMOUS videogame franchise and superhero Cole MacGrath.
I decided to take a different approach to social media market myself as an inspirational speaker by creating a User Generated Content (UGC) mission where I meet Cole and thank him for inspiring me to move forward with my life after I defeated cancer twice and became a hip amputee.
For instance, I had knee cancer for the second time when I was 17 years old, and I had to get my right leg amputated in 2003. 2004-2008 were dark years for me because I was different and felt alone. May 26th, 2009 changed my life for the better because the inspirational story of Cole MacGrath.
I’m a visual person and when I saw Cole in the hospital hooked up to an IV pole with his girlfriend Trish and best friend Zeke by his bedside in the beginning of the original inFAMOUS. I had a flashback from my own life when I was in the hospital hooked up to an IV pole with my Grandmother and Uncle by my bedside when I was 14 years old.

Throughout the mission, I explain to Cole how much he helped me during a time when I was depressed and didn’t feel like moving forward with my life.
At the end of the mission, I thank Sucker Punch Productions (developer of inFAMOUS) for creating Cole MacGrath. A person that is an ordinary person, but still able to overcome extra ordinary adversities.
Everything within this UGC mission “Digital Inspiration of Cole MacGrath” is 100% true, and I wanted to display my creativity through the visuals of inFAMOUS 2.
I also acknowledged all the fans of the original inFAMOUS videogames for keeping Cole’s legacy alive.
